I think now is the perfect time to start thinking about philanthropy in 2011. As the year begins to wind down, thoughts of new year's resolutions hover. I want to publish this review of Kathy LeMay's 2009 book, The Generosity Plan, as my contribution and suggestion to help those of you who want to incorporate or redirect giving in 2011. Millions of American donate their time and money, approximately 63.4 million of us to be blunt. Are you one of them? Are you happy with your giving? Do you know what you're doing?

Americans are a very philanthropic bunch. We lead the world in charitable giving. So, when we think about generosity in our life, do we have a plan? Typically not.

The Generosity Plan is a tool for creating and following a plan of giving personalized for your interests, abilities and priorities. While every hour and every dollar counts, it's probably in your best interest to focus on causes that hold personal importance to you.

The Generosity Plan helps identify causes near and dear to your heart by examining your giving roots, your vision, your priorities and your abilities. The result is a tailored giving formula. LeMay also advises how to avoid burnout and how to maintain energy and focus. Let's face it - sometimes the world's problems can be overwhelming to a passionate, motivated world-changer. Tips and tricks can make a difference in your philanthropic maintenance regimen. The book is a quick read; the exercises well designed. This book will help you configure the role generosity will play in your life.

Highly recommend this for everyone considering volunteerism, becoming a donor or other forms of charitable giving.

The Generosity Plan, by Kathy LeMay. 2009 Beyond Words ISBN# 978-1-58270-234-6, 208 pages.
